What you need to know
- Belkin has announced a new 60W GaN charger.
- It features a single USB-C plug and can charge a MacBook Pro.
- The size, however, comes in around the same as the current iPhone charger.
Belkin has announced the world's "smallest 60W GaN Charger," showing off how influential GaN battery technology will continue to become for consumer technology products.
The new charger features one USB-C plug, but the real impressive part of the charger is that it is about half the size of the 60W charger that Apple ships with its MacBook Pro. Belkin's 60W GaN charger is closer in size to Apple's 20W charger that it ships with its iPad Pro and iPad Air.
Belkin says that you can use the charger to charge even a 15-inch MacBook Pro (perhaps they meant a 16-inch MacBook Pro here) from 0-50% in an hour or an iPhone 8 or later from 0-50% in a half-hour.
Belkin points out that the new charger, because of its size and power, could become your one portable charger for virtually all of your tech.
The new charger joins others in the company's BOOSTCHARGE PRO lineup. You'll be able to order the new charger from Belkin's website (opens in new tab) soon. Check out a video for the new charger below:
